    Would love a live stream or telepresence option. I’m a bit geographically challenged in Australia

      Hi Alicia, I’ve sent the event organizers a query about live streaming, and will let you know as soon as I receive a response. Thanks you, Karen (keasp1@gmail.com)

      Hi Alicia, unfortunately the event won’t be live-streamed but it will be video recorded and posted on the Dalhousie website. We’ll repost it on our site as soon as it is available.
